Good eye! Fantastic stone! I understand that initial indications are that the Costa Rica fall is likely a CM and possibly a CI. Per the Met Bull database, since Cold Bokkeveld in 1838, CM falls seem to average about once every 10 years (and CI falls, since Alais in 1806, about every 40 years). These are exciting times!
